inside look of a serial killer
20 June 2018 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

This is a motion picture,containing lots of genres,from sexual thriller and dominant violence style,documentary style,real life drama style,and gives such a profound insight of a serial killers life.it is at time rather extreme, its like you'll not believe it. it called horror movie in the ads,but this is horror far beond what i call horror. its all too cold and premeditated....and would not have been shown on norwegian broadcasters at 6 p.m in the afternoon.

the producers and director have made a bold decision making this movie.

the story about joel rifkin a serial killer with suspected 17 killings on the record, are a narrative styled story, and ''seems ''like its told by himself . and the story is chronologically well told and extremely graphically acted,with semengly real life rapes and strangulation scenes, and lots of sex S/M ,domina and nudity.

i hope no copycats will show themselves after watching this movie, because some of the murder scenes seems very easy to do,and may give someone ''the kick''.also the thorough absence of conciousness and guilt are very scary.

Arnold Odo ,the main actor does a brilliant job,if you like it or not,i felt sick in periods of the film but the acting kept me watching it all. it is definately not a film for minors or the fainthearted, and should not be seen without company of a good friend or parents......its strong stuff!!!!
